DescriptionThe route heads up an arete and pocketed face. The route is fingery with most face holds being 2 finger pockets. Strong fingers subtle footwork and a couple long reaches will get you to the top of this stellar route.
I would give it 4 stars if it were not for the first move which is a bit awkward and unpleasant due to a small section of choss that should be your feet.
Once established on the wall 6 feet up, the route is the best arete I have ever had the pleasure of climbing.
(A note for those concerned about ethics, One hold does appear to be manufactured. The route is so good I suggest not getting your panties in a bunch and climb it anyway.)
LocationLocated on the upper tier. If you continue up the hill at the junction the first wall you come upon will be an amazing streaked wall. Route ascends the right arete on the wall.
